Lies, murder, and a legendary courtroom battle threaten to tear apart the Territory of Hawaii. In September of 1931, Thalia Massie, a young naval lieutenant’s wife, claims to have been raped by five Hawaiian men in Honolulu. Following a hung jury in the rape trial, Thalia’s mother, socialite Grace Fortescue, and husband, along with two sailors, kidnap one of the accused in an attempt to coerce a confession. When they are caught after killing him and trying to dump his body in the ocean, Mrs. Fortescue’s society friends raise enough money to hire seventy-four-year-old Clarence Darrow out of retirement to defend the vigilante killers. The result is an epic courtroom battle between Darrow and the Territory of Hawaii’s top prosecutor, John C. Kelley, in a case that threatens to touch off a race war in Hawaii and results in one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in American history. Written in the style of a novel, but meticulously following the historical record, A Death in the Islands weaves a story of lies, deception, mental illness, racism, revenge, and murder—a series of events in the Territory of Hawaii that nearly tore apart the peaceful islands, reverberating from the tenements of Honolulu to the hallowed halls of Congress, and right into the Oval Office itself, and left a stain on the legacy of one of the greatest legal minds of all time.

For the first time, an Islamic expert reveals the root cause of "honor" killing! This is the first book to demonstrate that the root cause of "honor" killing is not culture but the Islamic doctrine of amr bil ma'ruf. In the book a real, qualified Islamic scholar meticulously analyzes how sharia law and the Islamic religious concept of ghayra provide the motive and amr bil ma'ruf provides the detailed script that results in "honor" violence and killing. "This is an outstanding book that provides a clear and concise account of how honor killing flows from Islam's authoritative sources. The book shows how those sources link even sexual relations to the idea of Islamic supremacy and global conquest." -Admiral James A. "Ace" Lyons, Jr., former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet "With unique erudition, clarity, and courage, Akbari demonstrates, irrefragably, how the ugly phenomenon of Muslim "honor" killing flows naturally from Islam's Sharia-based scheme for enforcing "sexual morality" within the Muslim community." --Dr. Andrew Bostom, MD, MS, Author of Sharia Versus Freedom: The Legacy of Islamic Totalitarianism "I am pleased to see this book published to deal with this vitally important topic." --Abullah Al-Araby, Director, The Pen vs. the Sword Ministry &Author of The Islamization of America "Must reading for understanding the underlying religious basis for 'honor killing' and 'ghayra violence.'" --Dr. Jeff Addicott, Professor of Law & Director, Center for Terrorism Law, St. Mary's University "Educators, child welfare workers, medical professionals, police departments, and emergency responders who touch the lives of Muslim women and children will find this book essential." --Karen Kruse Hall, President, Central Texas Orphan Mission Alliance

Rana Husseini’s hard hitting and controversial examination of honour crimes is a fearless, groundbreaking account of a topic that can no longer be ignored. Claiming the lives of 5,000 women every year, and common in many traditional societies around the world, as well as in migrant communities in Europe and the USA, these so-called ‘Honour Killings’ involve a ‘punishment’ – often death or disfigurement – carried out by a relative to restore the family’s honour. Breaking through the conspiracy of silence surrounding this crime, the book includes the personals stories of many high profile cases that have recently hit the news. No other writer has taken such an unflinching look at one of the most brutal practices that still exists in the modern world.
